Garlic Butter Shrimp and Rice is an easy yet flavorful recipe that takes only 10 minutes to cook. I am a fan of seafood, and shrimp are among my favorites! If you are anything like me, then you will love this recipe too.

This garlicky shrimp and creamy rice is super quick and easy to make and makes a great weeknight family meal, especially when you are in a rush or want a break from the regular chicken dinner. For this recipe, I use instant rice to speed up the prep time and it works like a charm. The best way to thaw frozen shrimp is to leave shrimp in its package in the fridge overnight. But if it’s not your case, use a bowl of cold water to thaw your shrimp faster.

To make the Garlic Butter Shrimp and Rice, you will need the following ingredients:
